Natural Resource Mapping
The old saying “A picture is worth a thousand words.” is certainly true in land use planning.
Communities across the state are challenged by growth and want to take charge of their future. The rapid pace of development has energized Land Use Commissions, Land Trusts and other citizen groups to take inventory of local natural resources and develop plans based on conservation of those resources. GIS computer generated maps are valuable tools in this process. These maps make it possible to visualize the local landscape and how the various resources are interconnected.
Your Conservation District can be a valuable partner in these efforts. Consult your local District to discuss their services.
